Digester Gas Sphere Inspection and Certification Services

Project Details

Digester Gas Sphere Inspection and Certification Services, Riverside County, CA

DPSI provided API 510 Internal/External visual and ultrasonic inspections of three digester gas spheres for the Eastern Municipal Water District. DPSI completed the internal visual inspection using small drones to minimize the use of scaffold, improve safety and reduce costs.

After inspection was completed and  the digesters were returned to service, DPSI performed leak detection inspections using a Forward Looking Infared (FLIR) gas detector on all flanged and threaded connections. The FLIR infrared camera is a preventative maintenance solution to spot leaks in piping, flanges and connections in petrochemical operations. The infrared camera can rapidly scan large areas and pinpoint leaks in real time. It is ideal for monitoring plants that are difficult to reach with contact measurement tools.
